I want to monitor the air band with a scanner, I have 20 feet of mast from a previous project. I want to know what kind of antenna I should be looking for to monitor the air band and VHF coms especially. I have 75 FEET of LMR-400 and I want to hook it up to a Pro-84 handheld. Becides getting a good antenna, should I get an signal amplifier to pull in the signals? all help appreciated

Take a look at this antenna.

Try the antenna without an amp first, then decide if you need an amp.
